Saving Big Bucks

So, I have started something called The Grocery Game. It is a website where you sign up to receive lists from the grocery stores that you shop at most. This list tells you what will be on sale that week, where you can find coupons for those sale items, and then you can print out the list with just the items you plan on purchasing.

I went to Walgreens and Food Lion today. I bought mostly body/hair/home care stuff at Walgreens, and then bought groceries at Food Lion.

My total amount saved today by using The Grocery Game...

Drum Roll Please...

$53.35!!!

FANTASTIC! It only took a little planning last night and this morning, then driving to both places to buy the stuff I wanted. I even gotjavascript:void(0) 3 items for FREE! INCREDIBLE! I am loving it!

We figure if we can do just that each week, we will save almost 250 a month in groceries, and it will only get better as I start to accumulate more coupon circulars and stockpiling goods when they are super cheap/free!

Woo Hoo!
